Spades (de Quevedo)

Azadas son la hora y el momento
que, a jornal de mi pena y mi cuidado,
cavan en mi vivir mi monumento.

The hours and seconds are spades,
by pain and grief well paid, digging
my grave in the midst of my days.

Francisco de Quevedo, from "Signifícase la propria brevedad de la vida, sin pensar, y con padecer, salteada de la muerte
